Find out how to wear Velvet this Winter…
Velvet is often thought of as the go to fabric for winter evening events.
But for A/W 2017 that notion has been discarded. This A/W it is time to embrace velvet in your day time wardrobe and Trilogy has just the hit list to get you started.
Velvet is both seasonally appropriate and has a luxe look that will instantly update your denim work pieces. Style your favourite blue jeans with a midnight-blue (deliciously dark navy) velvet blazer from Rebecca Taylor or Helene Berman. Style with a white or cream silk shirt and navy flats to show you mean business this winter.
If your style is a little less structured then J Brand might just have what you are looking for. From wide legged velvet trousers (style them with a black cashmere roll neck and pointed-toe boots, and you can’t go wrong) to velvet bomber jackets in jewel green that brighten up your weekend wardrobe in a very autumnal way, this is a brand that does casual luxe the way it should be done.
Next up: velvet jeans.
Bear with us, as we know this is not the easiest of trends to pull off. But brands such as J Brand and Paige have made this trend a little less difficult by creating their iconic skinny styles in a variety of velvet hues this season. So you know the cut is taken care of, but now we have to tackle the styling.
For daytime, keep the colour of your jeans to a muted tone such as aubergine or forest green, or classic black. Pair with a tailored denim shirt, neutral pumps and an oversized tote, for a daytime look that showcases velvet’s appeal this season.
If you are looking for something a little different for your next dinner date, pair your velvet jeans with metallic heels and a printed silk shirt for an evening look that ticks all the style trends this season.
If you go with a classic black jean then consider adding a little additional sparkle with some key metallic pieces. Depending on your style , add a subtle metallic tweed jacket, or a stand-out-in-a-crowd sequin tee.
Are you daring enough to try this new trend this winter?
